Even Kirby isn't as goofy as some of the wacko roles Turner has crafted in his diverse acting career. Comprised of feature and short films, television series and numerous appearances, and with over 20 stage plays, one-man-shows and comedy tours, he has the odd distinction of creating the weirdest group of cult favorites imaginable.
Turner seemingly burst onto the scene as MTV's spokesman Randee of the Redwoods. He did hundreds of spots over four years for RANDEE FOR PRESIDENT ads (1987-90) but he had been acting in television, movies, theatre and touring the nation since 1975 in the five-member comedy troupe DUCKS BREATH MYSTERY THEATER.
Turner's film credits run from big studio releases for Warner Brothers (JACK FROST and THE LOST BOYS) and Columbia (ST. ELMO'S FIRE) to the very independent films OFF THE LIP; THE POMATUS OF LOVE (with Kristen Scott Thomas and Michael McKean) and ZADAR! COW FROM HELL.
